YouTube's mobile app finally gets a dark theme

Google announced that a dark mode for YouTube is finally coming to Android and iOS.

Ever since Google included a dark mode for YouTube on desktop, it was only a matter of time until the feature would be supported on the mobile app. If you activate Dark Mode, the background on the YouTube app will become black instead of the standard white.

So when will those last details be ironed out and YouTube dark mode for Android ready for all to enjoy? It's gentler on the eyes, which could encourage users to spend more time on YouTube's mobile app and possibly let them sleep easier. Nothing else seems to have been implemented except for this new dark theme, but one thing that's worth mentioning is the update will only be available to iOS users initially. The playback screen featured a more consistent skinning, and we already saw developers fine-tuning the shades of dark gray tones being employed. Well like we said, right now the mobile roll-out has only just begun, and so far it's only hitting iOS-this follows the desktop launch of dark mode previous year. The dark theme as well accentuates the colours in the app, drawing the true colours of the videos out.
